The soliton wave model of action potentials, and the proposal of induced lipid pores, are potentially paradigm shifting ideas which challenge accepted views of the Hodgkin-Huxley model and of protein-based ion channels.  These two proposals are reviewed, and possible tests of each are presented.  Also, three key non-electrical features seen during action potentials are reviewed;  a shift in birefringence, the pattern of heat emission and absorption, and the expansion of cell diameter.  How...

I was the Visiting Lecturer at Cornell University (Ithaca, New York, USA) in charge of teaching the summer introductory biology courses for biology majors (BIO 1107 and BIO 1108).  These courses were last taught in the summer of 2010, after which Cornell University altered its biology majors and eliminated the requirement for a  freshman general biology sequence for biology majors.  Therefore, these courses are no longer taught at Cornell University.  Enclosed are PDF files from the last...

In the past century two versions of the principle of segregation have been used in biology, and both can claim to have connections to concepts presented by Mendel. The cytological version applies to all types of cell division and, by achieving transmission of full chromosome sets, acts to conserve the genome. Here independent assortment, not segregation, produces new genetic combinations. Some important features of the cytological version of segregation are consistent with Mendel's law of...
